Manicure Monday | Essie Double Breasted Jacket


It’s Monday which can mean only one thing.. it’s time to show off my latest nail colour! Over the weekend I decided to try out one of the newer Essie polishes in my stash, and the shade I ended up going for was Double Breasted Jacket – a gorgeous pink toned red that I just can’t get enough of.

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about red nail polish that just makes me feel so sophisticated and ready to take on the world. What I love about this particular shade is that the subtle hint of pink makes it so summer appropriate and it’s also a colour that I’ve found to even bring out a bit of colour on my pale skin.

This polish comes with the amazing larger Essie brush that makes application so easy and stress-free (ain’t nobody got time for tiny brush strokes), and Double Breasted Jacket also features the really glossy finish and pigmented formula that I’ve found in the Essie collections from last year. If you’re looking for classy and summer appropriate nails then look no further than Double Breasted Jacket, and please let’s ignore the fact that this polish was included in the Winter 2014 collection as I find nothing wintry about the colour.
